This is a short ( 100 page ) but very interesting interview with Elliott Carter conducted by Enzo Restagno, an Italian professor of music. The interview(s) took place in the wake of a series of concerts in Turin (1989) celebrating Carter's (then) half century of active composing. As Carter is well known as a lively, witty conversationalist and Mr. Restagno poses sensitive and erudite questions, the interview provides telling insights into Carter's artistic conceptions ( not restricted to music ), his memories of many great musicians ( Ives, Varese,etc ) and his thoughts about contemporary music and its often misunderstood role in American culture ( Carter has received far more commissions in the last 20 years from European sources ). Highly recommended to long time "Carterians", this little volume should prove valuable to newcomers as well.. This is the English translation...
